Residents at Holywell House had a great time celebrating St George’s Day last week, with decorations and cake making galore!
They got involved in decorating the home in honour of England’s patron saint, St, George as well as making some delicious cupcakes to mark the occasion which also happens to be a firm favourite among residents in terms of activities they love doing.
Ashley White, our manager at Holywell House, said: “Cake making is such an enjoyable and engaging activity for our residents. Not only does it encourage interaction and socialising with others, but it also exercises fine motor skills which are essential for living as independently as possible as well as providing mental stimulation because it requires concentration and focus.
“The cupcakes went down lovely with a cuppa in the afternoon and provided the perfect tonic for some relaxation following a morning of baking.”
We’re already looking forward to our next baking session!
"I am very pleased with how my mother has settled in and generally how supportive and caring the staff are. This has given us peace of mind knowing that she is safe & well looked after. Thank you."
"Our mum has been a resident at Cramlington House for over a year and we have nothing but praise for the friendly, approachable staff and management. We always feel like part of an extended family and when we visit nothing is too much bother. We are completely happy with the standard of care, support and understanding we all receive as a family."
"From the first day, I knew it was the place for my mum. Clean, friendly staff, lovely environment! My mum would not get the opportunity to do the activities she is experiencing if she was not in Cramlington House. It is home from home and we can visit anytime. I can't say enough of how great Cramlington House is. "
"This is an absolutely superb care facility. The staff say that this is the home of the residents, in which they work - and they evidence that philosophy every day. In the last months of our mother's long life, we took comfort form the fact that she was safe and secure, being well-fed and looked after. The entire care team are brilliant. "
"All the staff at West Farm have provided such wonderful care, compassion and support to my auntie. We both feel incredibly lucky to have found West Farm, it’s been the perfect home for my auntie. I can honestly say, hand on heart, every aspect of the care provided by each member of staff at West Farm has been outstanding."
